auction is for an original Ferrari handbook supplement (Guida Rapida) which
would have been destined for an owner, in the Italy market (and possibly other Italian speaking),
of a newly delivered 458 Italia as
an addition to the full standard handbook.
Italia, replacing the highly regarded F430, was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2009. A Spider version
followed in late 2011 but this book features information relating only to the
original Berlinetta version.
numerical part of the 458 Italia
name refers to the car’s 4.5 litre
engine in V8 configuration, while
the Italia suffix was just a year too
early to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Italian
state, so the factory official line was that it was used because the car’s
design embodied all the flair and passion of the nation!
book, measuring 17.5cm x 9cm, opens
out concertina-fashion to 5 times this size allowing 8 small inner pages to hold the
information chosen by Ferrari from the main handbook. All of the text in this version is in Italian only.
as the name conveys, is a shortened version of the full handbook bringing
together the instructions covering the main controls and functions of the car
but supplements the full handbook rather than, in any way, replacing it.
The factory catalogue number on the rear
‘cover’ reads Catalogo no 3593/09
- 1a edizione Dicembre 2009, but with no specific print quantity quoted.
This VERY RARE (due to the limited
requirement for country-specific markets), and owner-unused, book
is in very good condition with minimal markings of any kind.
